Hmm, this appears to be a cut-and-paste from some other website. The hint was the bare text saying "(click here for picture gallery)" or words to that effect.

Is the copyright cleared? -- Hari 21:10 Feb 10, 2003 (UTC)

The article requires a major re-write to make it compact and presentable. Depending on time, I will try to do something.--Bhadani 5 July 2005 02:40 (UTC)

Reference[edit]

We need a link/ISBN for the reference, 82.36.147.99. -Penwhale | Blast the Penwhale 12:15, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi friend - all it says is Publication Bureau - Punjabi University, Patiala on my copy. See - http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~jw3u/gurdwara.history.html. Also - http://worldcat.org/wcpa/oclc/30513185.
Friend, you should be able to find an ISBN for the book, if major universities have them in the library. -Penwhale | Blast the Penwhale 14:17, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
Got it - ISBN 81-7380-038-8 —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sikh-history (talkcontribs) 11:25, 23 January 2007 (UTC).

My Rationale For Changes[edit]

  • This State and Jind and Nabha, are not Jat States in shape or charachetr as claimed by other writers. They may have originated as Jats but are very much Sikh in characher like other Misls or Misals.
  • The article alluded that the History of Patiala is surrounded in mystery. Not so. There are detailed Persian accounts. Other Historians like Bannerjee have reserched this fully too.
  • I wished to add more detail rather than just 'the history of Patial is shrouded in mystery'. Wikipedia is about giving information.
  • Although of Jatt origin myself, I do not see why this article for Patiala has so many refrences under Jat, when every child in an Indian school is taught that these Royal Houses are Sikh. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sikh-history (talkcontribs) 12:37, 21 January 2007 (UTC).

What does "Peg" mean?[edit]

The only mention of it in this article is:

Patiala is famous for its peg (a reference to Patiala Peg)

I have no idea what Patiala Peg is: this badly needs explaining in the article (not just in Talk!). Loganberry (Talk) 01:24, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

I've added the {{confusing}} tag, in the hope that someone will edit that part of the article so that it doesn't just assume readers know what "Peg" means in this context. Loganberry (Talk) 15:15, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

ARCHITECTS IN PATIALA CITY. A very famous Architect in patiala. BAKHSHI ASSOCIATES —Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.197.119.194 (talk) 12:42, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

The patiala peg denotes an abnormally large sum of whisky.I read it in a book.Will provide the book's name. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zoravar (talkcontribs) 17:37, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Lehal village now patiala[edit]

with due respect, I made this page because people don't know about the history of Lehal village, mainly living abroad. This article will shred a light of knowledge on the young minds. Actually few days ago there is a debate on Patiala history on one of the Channel in Canada. Some of the young minds don't even know about the correlation of Lehal, Patiala, Guru Teg Bahadur ji and Gurudwara Dukh Nivaran sahib. I made this page to help others know better but if think that it is not worth then you are welcome to merge it with other. If you think it is good to go, then please help to improve it better. Thanks for your recommendation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mslehal (talkcontribs) 16:35, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
